A darkly cynical drama about party compromise, complete with last-minute backroom deal-making, this revival of Gore Vidal's 1960 hit The Best Man is as timely and topical as ever. This inside look at the double- and triple-crossing that occurs during a presidential race tells the story of two men battling for the nomination, both of whom must choose between mudslinging and campaigning on the issues. The show's original Broadway production was nominated for six Tony Awards. Filled with Vidal's trademark verbal fire, this seminal political work, featuring Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea and Keegan company member Colin A. Smith, resonates as an exploration of how political and personal agendas can change the destiny of a nation. Learn More

Overall I liked the play and enjoyed checking out the Keegan theater for the first time. The storyline is ambitious, and as the previous reviewer noted at times seemed to be covering too much in one play. That said, I enjoyed the interplay on stage between the two different stories and time periods. It is was a bit morose for a Saturday night - but I still enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
